Before my wedding, while I was stressing out, my dad said, "Honey, the most important thing that happens here is that you two get married. If one of you throws up on the other one's shoes and then faints in horror, we'll pick you up and clean your shoes and you'll go on. It's the commitment you're making to each other that's important, not the wedding."
